Company Magazine website feature NINA NESBITT as one of the “Three New Girls to listen to in 2013”
Forget Gaga and her ‘Little Monsters’, Justin and his ‘Beliebers’ and even Jessie J and her ‘heartbeats’, 2013 is going to be dominated by ‘Nesbians’- the self-named super fans of the lovely Nina Nesbitt who she chats to in a special Nesbian code via her website. Cute or what?
Nina has already wowed the crowd in her homeland of Scotland at T in the Park, racked up 50,000 Twitter followers and thanks to chance meetings, twitter convos and a lot of determination she has already supported Ed Sheeran, Example and Rizzle Kicks on their sell-out tours.
The 18-year-old half-Scot half-Swedish lass with an enviable blonde mane of hair that frames her signature red lips and eyeliner flicks is truly an artist of her generation – she started her career by uploading videos of covers on Youtube, writing songs and teaching herself how to play guitar at the age of 15, all whilst staying in direct contact with her fans and finishing off at school. Phew!
Her debut EP, ‘The Apple Tree’ reached number 6 in the ITunes chart and track of the name same name was Fearne Cotton’s single of the week on Radio 1. She also released track, ‘Boy’ online which has received a cray amount of Youtube hits.
Skip forward to 2013 and Nesbitt is on the brink of releasing her debut single due early Feb with an album to boot in the summer which has been produced with Jake Gosling [He’s worked with the likes of Paloma Faith and One Direction FYI].
I was lucky enough to catch up with Nina for a quick chat recently where she told me that the album would be “like The Apple Tree EP but with a bit of a grungier feel too.” It’s set to be a mix of ballads and upbeat acoustic tracks with lyrics that touch upon adolescence, love and break ups.
Fans of 2012’s golden boy, Ed Sheeran will undoubtedly love Nina and not just because the pair have already worked together. Nina offers the female perspective of confessional and relatable lyrics with catchy melodies- something that Ed cracked when he initially debuted last year.
When I asked Nina if she was nervous when touring with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Example, she replied in her typically nonchalant yet understated way, “I don’t really get nervous, it was good practice I guess”. Unfazed or what? A confident young woman who has defied the rules, loves her fans and broken into the industry in her own way is just what the chart needs – she has the talent to back up the bravado too…We officially want to be a part of the Nesbian crew!
